In the same manner, in 2017, more than twelve thousands crimes associated with knife were documented in UK. In 2016, the crime committed from the knife in complete UK were found to be raised by fourteen percent since they were approximately eleven percent in UK.

The primary goal of this study are:

  • To recognize the happening of knife crimes in London.
  • To recognize the elements that happen with ethnic teenage people to commit crimes from knife.


As per the hypothesis where any kind of ethnic discrimination is an important element that happens rises in knife. The report will consist of the introduction as well as literature review following by processes, outcomes, explanations as well as recommendations or advices.

Literature review

From 2018 to 2019, knife committed from the crime is called to be raised by approximately sixty nine percent in all across the UK in comparison to 2014. In the same manner, from 2018 to 2019, crimes is called to raise by fifty six percent in UK as well as metropolitan police services areas when there is comparison to 2014. The point of view of public about the knife focused crime being a challenge has been raised as well as about thirty percent of the people defined in a questionnaire of 2018 is an issue for people. In the same manner, approximately fifteen percent of the public mentioned in a questionnaire of 2017 which knife crime is an issue for people (Cook and Walklate, 2020).

The situation of sharp tools that are being find in the school have raised from previous times. Some information was assembled from police stations of UK that signals that in 2017 and 2018 where about three hundred and sixty four sharp tools were assembled from any schools. This kind of number has been raised from 2013 since there were two hundred seventy tools assembled from schools in the similar year.

The researched related with tool have recognised the features of protection as well as self-defence to be the important factor people have knife. There are number of people have been researched as well as outcomes exhibited that the factor of self-protection balances to risk of any police arrest. But, it is additionally discussed that the factors in order to carry a knife are highly complexed. There are times, public never have knifes for self-protection however they utilise them to create some threat other people as well as perform the robbery or other kind of crimes (Gilbert and Sinclair, 2019). Moreover, public also carried some knife to exhibit power as well as status to carry a tool.

The teenage youth in London also signals that they keep tool with people for the motive of protection from any physical fight or to save themselves from the robbery. Some teenage youth determine to carry knifes since they see different people performing this. Normally, the ethnic teenage people who are removed from school as well as take part in gang operations that carry the knifes. Such people were the victim of violence as well as unfair act previously as well as then they get violent. It later become impossible to distinguish between offensive as well as defensive carrying of knife.

The teenage fear is to get robbery done or be threatened may lead in a raise in the carrying the knife. In addition, the fear of physical or verbal focused aggression can lead to depression. In the situation of public who are ten to fifteen years, the fear of being a victim was found for many people. In such kind of age group, the teenage youth are part of consideration that is subtle for the outcome of behaviour. There has been an inverse associations among accomplishment in education institutes as well as eliminating from the school (Harding, 2020). The elements that are consisted in such circumstances in the safety failure in educational institutional consist of:

  • The schools are taken into consideration to be secure place when there is a comparison to the street culture.
  • Introducing the zero tolerance philosophy gave the point of view to parents where there are some challenges internally the school as well as it lead to a raise to any kind of fear.

The eliminated from school can also be a used strategy to skip the educational institute. Another factor that can be potential to carry knife is to become more popular among many fellow students. The socialization act among people become basic in teenage youth.


The primary goal of the report is to recognise the elements that can lead to ethnic teenagers to further commit knife focused crimes. To perform the study, the qualitative research focused designs has been chosen. When compared to any quantitative researches, the qualitative researches is called to be massively subjective. The report is dependent on the basis of main research studies. The databases accessing as well as utilised in making such report consist of Science Direct, PubMed as well as Government sites. There are some keywords were utilised for the motive of researching the research studies like ethnic crimes, knife crime among teenagers and many more (Haylock et al., 2020).

Outcomes and discussion

The research is based on very less data on the reasons for knife carrying. Some of the researches are considered as subjective as well as consist questionnaire about the professional, youth employees as well as other experts. But, some of the studies are capable to offer the data associated to tool carrying operations. In 2004, a questionnaire signalled that two percent of the child researching in education institutes as well as nine percent of the eliminated people or children have once or more carrying tool with people to defend people. The same kind of study in addition discussed that the people who were victim of any kind of crime or abuse in the previous time have the chances to carry a tool with people when compared to people who never been the target of any kind of crime (Kirchmaier et al., 2020).

There are many children who were the victim of any crime as well as they carry the knife is twice than the children who never experience any tool threat or bully people.

The school with eliminated children with 2 kinds. Approximately sixty two percent children are those who can carry a knife with as well as they were threaten to get bullied. Approximately fifty one percent of children are people who are never even bullied.

The important thing to understand that there are many people being threatened is greater among teenage people. There are approximately fifty percent of school among teenage people who get the threating and this rate is massive than the previous years. Another questionnaire add to the reasons where many ethnic teenage people carry the knife with people since they feel insecurity as well as frightened. In the same manner, it is mentioned that there are approximately eight percent of teenage people who had a knife with people in previous time as well as carrying it for the motive of protection (Skarlatidou et al., 2021).

There are approximately nine percent public who signalled that they carry a knife for the motive of fight circumstances as well as other mentioned that they can carry it for other motives. It has been mentioned in the research where a knife carrying among teenage people is also associated to in case they have a feeling secure from bullying, threats as well as other kind of crimes. As per the researches, it is mentioned where number of health care experts discussed that the main factor of teenagers carry the knife consist of crime, experiences, threating, bullying as well as victimized people. In the same manner, it is recognised that the fear as well as threats are the important features which play a crucial role during the life time of a teenager in order to carry or may not carry a tool. As per the researches, fear is called to be the important factor to the teenagers in order to carry the knife as well as commit the crime (Stone, 2018). As per the social worker, aggression is left way behind as well as there is a fear is the primary factor that can cause knife carried among ethnic teenager in London.

Carrying of the knife among teenage people can be a method of benefitting the status among teenage youth. The teenager who were excluded from education institute or have seem any other kind of social exclusion have the chances to look for many processes to get the status. As per the researches, that such society is not equal as well as people are recognised by the colour of the skin as well as the teenagers in that kind of society can have a feeling which have a tool can assist them in getting respect neither the degrees (Straw et al., 2018).

But, there are specific gaps in the research because to which it is advices to carry the new kind of researchers to recognise the important elements to carry the knife as well as also commit many crimes. It is in addition advices to study the challenges shown among ethnic teenage people as well as in the domestic phases as well as schools (Tribe et al., 2018).
